Las Vegas

Aladdin at Las Vegas

I’m going back to Vegas in 2 weeks for a bachelorette party. I am excited about it, because it is with some good friends and Vegas is fun. But this is tempered by the fact that Vegas is incredibly fake. I have been thinking about why my sister and brother-in-law like going there so much. They don’t really gamble much, and then only slots. I think it is because they like familiar things, but it still feels like they are seeing something different. They can see castles, but they don’t have to go to Europe, they can visit the pyramids without going to Egypt and they can always go to McDonald’s for dinner. It’s 100 strip malls packed together and glorified by a factor of one thousand to one million. I hope I’m not too cynical about Las Vegas on this trip.
